How Out of Character of Me!

I admit that I am not an uber-mom. Far from it. Cadie is fed formula by choice and uses disposable diapers. And somewhere down the line, she'll dunk double stuffed Oreos into non-organic milk. So sue me.

So I was genuinely surprised when I had the urge to make my own baby food. It has nothing to do with cost of baby food, or making sure I know what my baby is eating. I think it has more to do with actually spending the time to make her food instead of just popping open a jar. Ok, so the cost has a little bit to do with it.

We had ham, crock pot mashed potatoes, and green beans for dinner tonight. I decided to go ahead and blend up the remaining green beans. So I still have 2 weeks until she can start eating it, but I figure it'll keep for a month, so I should be good. I am beyond excited that I finally got to use the magic bullet!

Fix It Friday

I'm home from a relaxing two weeks visiting family, so I promise this blog will be updated more.

Yesterday's photo was quite the challenge. I am addicted to cloning right now, so you'll see a lot of that used below. I'm really happy with how it turned out.

Fix It Friday

This picture was taken by one of the official contributors over at I heart faces. It fits into their weekly photo challenge baby feet. I'd like to eventually do the weekly challenges, but it's kind of overwhelming at this point.

I pass this field of horses every day. I always want to stop and take pictures, but don't because I'm on company time. So today, on the last day of school, I packed up my camera and talked my husband into a little pit stop on the way home. I got to play with my Canon 75-300mm (think far range) which I never ever get the opportunity to break out. I'm really pleased with how they came out.

BTW- I just love this baby horse!
